I already have these components:
Samsung dvd writer
1 x 250gb, 1 500gb WD SATA hard drive
BFG 8800GT OC
I have picked out these components:
Motherboard -> Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R ATX LGA775 Conroe P35 DDR2 1PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 SATA RAID Sound GBLAN
I like this one because it has 8 SATA ports; I am unsure what this means though 4 x USB 2.0/1.1 headers, does this one mean its a connector for the front USB ports?
Computer Case -> Coolermaster CM 690
Would there be space behind the motherboard to hide cables like in Antec P182? I mainly selected this case because I want a silent one that isn't too heavy/big. My current case is not very good and fans inside are very loud.
The biggest thing I need help on would be selecting which silent fans to buy. I have heard the Noctua fans are very good. If I am going with this one, should I spend another $1 for the 1300RPM? would that be worth it? Are there any fans that's better and cheaper than the Noctua?
I might replace the blue LED fan at the front when I get some money too.
Memory -> I'm getting the Mushkin ones, I like the look and I'm avoiding Corsair RAM.
Last thing would be the CPU cooler, I might try OC'ing in the future hence why I want one.
Should I go with the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro or the Scythe Katana 2 CPU Cooler?
Thanks for reading,
